How to Manually Configure Your Personal Computer

NOTE: You must have local administrative rights on the computer.

  1. Download wsus.reg to your hard disk.
  2. Double click on wsus.reg.
  3. When prompted if you are sure you want to add the information to the registry, click Yes. You should see a confirmation that the information was successfully entered into the registry.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Reboot.

WSUS Settings for Personal Computers

WSUS Clients on Personal Computers are configured with the following settings:

  • Turn on Automatic Updates.
  • Point to WolfTech's WSUS server:
  • Set the appropriate client-side target group - Personal.
  • Auto-download and install patches approved on the WSUS server at the scheduled install time.
  • Set the scheduled install time to be 2:00 PM every day.
  • Reschedule patch installation to the next boot time if the regular scheduled time is missed.
  • Specify a 15 minute delay that Automatic Updates will wait, following system start-up, before proceeding with a scheduled installation that was missed previously. This is to ensure that the machine is fully operational before patch installation will occur.
  • Allow non-admins to install patches and to delay rebooting after patch installation.
  • Set the option to not restart the computer automatically during a scheduled installation if a user is logged in to the computer. Instead, Automatic Updates will notify the user to restart the computer to complete the installation.
  • Enable the immediate installation of minor patches that do not require a reboot.
  • Set new update detection frequency to every 8 hours.
